I love this sparkly glitter paper!
First trace your letters face down on your paper, also facedown. If your letter is bigger than your paper you may have to cut more than one piece.
Cut out your letters. To cut the inside I simply use a hole punch first and then use my scissors to cut out the middle.
Add yes glue to the top of your letter, just use your fingers to smooth it all over creating a nice thin layer for your paper to stick to. Then simply wash off your hands with water. Place your paper on top.
Now allow your glue to dry a bit until the paper is secure.
If you want you can sand the edges using sandpaper to make any overhanging paper flush with the wood. You also have the option to paint your letters first depending on the look you are going for. And since my letters were big and had a paper seam at the bottom I decided to add a little pearl trim. Found these sticky kind at Hobby Lobby.
The best part is you can choose any scrapbooking paper you like and decorate your wood letters. They look so elegant as a Wedding Decoration!
